What's Going On? (Four Non Blondes)

It's been a long while since I've posted anything. So, what's going on?

Jeff & I went to see Rod Stewart at Key Arena a few weeks back. Good show, but the (old) man can't dance & should stop trying; he just looks silly.

Jeff went to AZ with Randy to catch a few M's Spring Training games & hang out with Ryan.

I am leaving in a week to Las Vegas with Joanna & Kat.

Joanna wants to get rid of her cat because it's now "high maintenance" (it poo's on her carpet & she doesn't like it (!!)

I am putting in a day of overtime tomorrow to work on merger stuff. Ch-Ching!

Had some mighty tasty ribbies at Famous Dave's for David's birthday on Wednesday.

I'm still trying to collect monies for my March of Dimes walk on 05May07. Please, feel free to donate at the above link. You can use credit, cash, check, paypal.

My jury duty is over. I had a really good time doing it. It was fascinating; I wasn't bored at all. I imagine if I wasn't selected for a jury, I might have a different opinion of it. In a nutshell, my case was a civil lawsuit between two neighbors where one had cut down 147 trees on the other's property, claiming they had permission. We found in favor of the plaintiff, claiming the defendants didn't have enough 'proof'. The plaintiffs will win upwards of $260,000!

Today, I am thankful for:

1. Leftovers

2. Bleu Cheese

3. Google Images

4. Vacations

5. Puzzles.

If You Wanna be Happy (Jimmy Soul)

I really didn't have anything specific to post about tonight so this post may be very short & sweet or it could end up being random & long. We'll see how it goes...

I had this whole bit typed up & then deleted it all because I think it was a little 'too' deep for the mood I'm in right now. As random as it is, this was all I saved & I'm leaving it at that:

I believe having a positive outlook on life has been something I've been blessed with & for that, I am thankful.

I have to post about my great find over the weekend. I got a coupon in the mail a few weeks back for a free (yes, free!!) panty from Victoria’s Secret. Also, in the flyer was a mention of $25 off 2 bras. All girls (& probably some guys too) know how expensive VS is so when you have free anything from there & $25 off other stuff, you gotta jump at it. The bras I normally get I couldn't find (& I was in a hurry so I didn't want to take too long searching) but I found one that was similar for $24 each, but on sale for 2/$39. And, with my $25 off coupon, that came to $16 & change for 2 bras & a panty. Score one for me!!

There's this billboard at the Auburn train station that's had my eye for the last couple weeks or so. It clearly reads, "5 tacos + soda for $4.99". I love tacos & I love cheap. Why hello, Taqueria El Reconsito. Jeff & I finally checked out this hole in the wall, chain restaurant on Saturday & had our fill of tacos. A serious dive, but from what I understand, the authenticity of the cuisine was very close to that of Mexico. Yumm!

In other news, I think my lump is healing nicely. It's not really tender to the touch anymore. The bruising has faded. The hole isn't crusted over & nasty. I'm not wearing bandaids anymore. As Bo Bice would say, "it's a good thing."

Speaking of American Idol... Did anyone see the result show last week? I am not a fan of Kellie Pickler, but did she get a little augmentation in the bustal area since her last AI appearance? Yikes! She looked like she was about to have a wardrobe malfunction & bust out of her top!

Today, I am thankful for:

1. Forgiveness
2. My health
3. Somebody moved my cheese
4. Diversity
5. Not having ‘quiet hours’
